Spellbinders November 2021 Clear Stamp & Die of the Month | Around The Holidays

Hello, crafty friends!
Happy Wednesday! I have a Christmas Card to share today made using the Spellbinders Clear Stamp & Die of the Month - Around The Holidays.

The Spellbinders Clear Stamp of the Month is a 9 piece stamp set containing decorative holiday details on a curved line with curved sentiments too. This stamp set is perfect for lots of Holiday occasions and can be used in a variety of ways. The Stamp Set coordinates with this month's Large Die of the Month and Glimmer Die of the Month Sets, so you can mix and match your supplies to create different projects. This “Around The Holidays” stamp set features made in the USA stamps from high-quality photo-polymer for clear, crisp impressions. 

I used the curved borders from the kit along with the coordinating dies to create my card.

For my card, I started by cutting a piece of Snowdrift Cardstock with the border die included in the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month Kit. Next, I stamped the snowflake border in Versamark Embossing ink on Snowdrift Cardstock and heat embossed it using Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder before die cutting it with the matching border die. Then I cut Mirror Gold Cardstock using one of the borders from the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month Kit and adhered the layer underneath the front card panel to add a gold border to it. 

Once that was done, I stamped the presents border on to Snowdrift Cardstock using Versamark Clear Embossing ink and heat-embossed it using Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder to make painting such small images a bit easier by providing a slightly raised edge to contain the pigment. I coloured the images using Copic Markers and then die cut each of the presents using the coordinating dies included in the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month Kit.

I assembled the different components of the card front together, then backed it with a piece of foiled patterned paper from a previous Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month Paper Pad. Once that was done, I stamped one of the sentiments in the stamp set, positioning it to follow the arc of the die cut card front using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then I placed the die cut presents along the die cut edge and popped them on to my panel using foam squares

Next, I die cut Snowdrift Cardstock using the Holiday Word Blocks Etched Dies (I snipped off the holly leaves from the Ho Ho Ho piece to use for my card design) and coloured the pieces using Copic Markers. Then I matted my card front to a piece of Pomegranate Cardstock before adhering it to a top-folding white card base using the Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue. Lastly, I added custom-coloured Crystal Jewels to the die-cut leaves to embellish my card.
